The Dallas Mavericks will name former AT&T executive Cynthia Marshall their interim CEO at a press conference on Monday in a direct response to the franchise’s sexual assault and domestic violence allegations. Marshall, who retired last year, most recently served as the telecom company’s vice president of human resources and chief diversity officer. The Mavericks are accused of protecting two former employees — one with a history of domestic violence, the other an ex-CEO facing allegations of rampant sexual harassment — according to a scathing Sports Illustrated story published last week. Terdema Ussery was a long-time Mavs executive and was accused by at least two women of sexually harassing them for years. He left the team in 2015. Earl K. Sneed, a former writer for the Mavericks' website, was arrested on suspicion of assaulting his then-girlfriend and eventually pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault in 2012, according to the report. Sneed was fired last week.
